Swimming training improves brown-adipose-tissue activity in young and old mice.

Abstract

The impairment of brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenic activity with aging has been well documented. The current study investigated the effect of swimming training on BAT activity in 2-month-old (young) and 26-month-old (old) male mice. The trained mice underwent a 6-week swimming program (1 h/day, 5 days/week) in water at 35-36 degrees C. Compared with… (More)
